So many comedians, entertainers in general, aren't comfortable in silence. Norm reveled in it like a pig in shit. The more uncomfortable the room the better he felt. Perhaps the best timing and sense of the room of any comedian ever. And very likely your favorite comedian's favorite comedian.
He will be missed. Here are some of my other favorite moments, especially from when he would join Conan. Comedy Central needs to stop being cowards and put his roast of Bob Saget on the internet pronto.
